The 4-Hour Workweek, Expanded and Updated: Expanded and Updated, with over 100 New Pages of Cutting-Edge Contentby Timothy Ferriss
Synopses & Reviews
More than 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content.
Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.
This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:
•How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week
•How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
•How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
•How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist
•How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent “mini-retirements”
The new expanded edition of Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Workweek includes:
•More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
•Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating e-mail, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than $8 a meal
•How Lifestyle Design principles can be suited to unpredictable economic times
•The latest tools and tricks, as well as high-tech shortcuts, for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either
What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering this question. Depending on when this is asked to this guest lecturer, he might answer he race motorcycles in Europe, or ski in the Andes. He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the 'deferred-life plan' and instead mastered currencies - time and mobility - to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now. In this book, Tim Ferriss aims to teach how to outsource a life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever wanted; how blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs; how to eliminate 50% of work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist; how to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent 'mini-retirements'; what the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income; and more.
TIMOTHY FERRISS, serial entrepreneur and ultravagabond, has been featured in the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Maxim, and other media. He speaks six languages, runs a multinational firm from wireless locations worldwide, and has been a world-record holder in tango, a national champion in Chinese kickboxing, and an actor on a hit television series in Hong Kong. He is twenty-nine years old.
